  • Thanks for the meganslaw link..... I like the way the interactive map works better than on family watchdog. Both sites have the same info if you click enough links, but the meganslaw site seems to give you more info with less work.

  • I have used and checked with my specific state. You can also check with your local police authorities websites, they usually have links there as well.

  • Depends on the state. Call your sherrifs department and ask.

  • There are a lot of them but keep in mind that not all sex offenders, who are supposed to register, actually do. In other words, those sites are still off and unfortunately that means there are far more out there than you'll know.
